18 inches of binding

Over two months ago, I blogged about the Sliced Coin Quilt Along quilt needing the binding.  That weekend, I completed most of the binding — except for about 18 inches.  Since then, this quilt sat folded up on my bookshelf for two months!  I was so close, yet I never finished it!  Today, I spent about 15 minutes finishing it up and now I have a quilt to share with the Sew Modern Monday Link Up and Quilt Story’s Fabric Tuesday.

Thanks again Elizabeth from the Don’t Call Me Betsy’s Blog for orchestrating the Sliced Coin Quilt Along.

I am expecting in November!

Over the past few years, I have been collecting fabric for my own baby quilt.  In 2009, I discovered Amy Schimler’s original Animal Party fabric line.  These are my two favorite fabrics:

I now have plenty of coordinating fabric to make the baby quilts.  I will be making a full size bed quilt and a crib quilt.

I already started the crib quilt with the summer panel.  Aren’t the colors awesome for a baby’s room?!

Best of all, Animal Party Too was just released in May!  Perfect timing 🙂
